Vacationing In Arizona: What A Beautiful State

by on Oct.04, 2014, under Vacations

If you have been considering vacationing in Arizona, there is plenty to do. With its picturesque scenery and places like the Grand Canyon, there is something in Arizona for everyone.

Known as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon offers breath taking views to enjoy. If visiting during the summer months, you are likely to run into quite a crowd on the South Rim where most people gather. The South Rim is roughly 4,500 feet deep and has an elevation of 7,000 feet. Given that it is 10 miles across and 277 miles long, you might want to engage the help of a mule or ride a train when you are ready to wander.

If you are a bird watcher, then you will enjoy spending the fall in Arizona watching birds while you are hiking in one of the many state parks. In Cochise County you will find one of the best bird watching spots in the United States. In this area you might see as many as 400 different species of birds. On the west coast of Arizona you might catch a glimpse of some of the rarest birds in America.

If gorgeous scenery is what you are looking for, then you have to stop in Sedona while you are there. The majestic red rock formations that you will find are simply breathtaking whether you are visiting during the summer months or looking at the red rocks with snow on them.

Another one of the most popular attractions are the Ghost Towns. These are former mining towns where people used to come to live after leaving California. Most of them make a nice day trip although there are some you might want to spend even more time at. Many of them offer the opportunity to search for treasures and include mining activities so you can get a feel for what it used to be like.

Whether it is so you can travel back to the past and learn how mining towns lived or so you can hike and look at birds and enchanting scenery, vacationing in Arizona is the perfect getaway. It does not matter if you live there or just want to visit, there is a lot going on!

      Holidays In Massachusetts In The Fall, The Mohawk Trail And Mount Greylock

      by on May.23, 2013, under Vacations

      Holidays in Massachusetts in the fall cannot really be considered complete without a scenic drive through some of the fantastic, fall foliage which New England is famous for. This short article describes one scenic route, across Mount Greylock, and along the Mohawk trail.

      Massachusetts is a state where one can drive from the tree covered hills and mountains in the west, to the pristine beaches in the east, in under three hours. Motorists who wish to see the best of the fall foliage can plan a scenic drive route through the state.

      There are various books and websites dedicated to finding the best scenic route through the New England fall scenery. One route, via the top of Mount Greylock, and onto the Mohawk Trail, has for a long time been a New England official scenic route.

      Via Mount Greylock and the Mohawk Trail, one can take a scenic drive through the Berkshires, and see views of five states from the top of Massachusetts’ highest mountain. Note that the route up Mount Greylock is closed in winter after the first of November.

      The section along Route 2 from the state border to the Connecticut River is New England’s first official scenic route. The honor was designated in 1914 by the Massachusetts state government, at a time when motor touring was in its infancy. This route was first pioneered by Native American tribes, and now forms a scenic highway through some of Massachusetts’ most spectacular scenery.

      Although you can reach the Mohawk Trail without crossing the top of Mount Greylock it is worth making the 8 mile ascent for the views across the unspoiled rural landscape in this part of the state. From the War Memorial Tower at the summit one can see five states.
